This is one of the most amazing places I have ever visited. The park 2,000 acres, 12 miles of hiking trails, and auto tour that is four miles long. This is a non-profit park. It is run very well. Great visitor center for the family....More

What a wonderful place to get away! The views are fantastic, and if you like to hike there are miles and miles and miles of paved and well-maintained natural trails. If you are in Central Ohio, this is a must-see.

Love walking here, geocaching and the beautiful gardens. Not hard to walk at all. Great for photos. The pond and the overlook is my favorite

I have been to Dawes more times than I can count. Great place to walk the dog, have a picnic & enjoy the outdoors. They do have a calendar of events that is good to review- there may be an event of interest to you!...More

You feel like a million bucks when you drive into this world class arboretum that is free and open to the public. It is a three-dimensional work of art. I love to walk through the arboretum all year round.

We made this little stop during a motorcycle ride. It was very nice. The drive around the park was very pretty and relaxing.
